While JP may think that Zeppelin was at their very best in '72 (remarks concerning How the West Was Won), it's hard to believe that they could have been as good as this night in Cleveland thirty years ago. I got my ticket by fixing a friend's car at The College of Wooster where we were freshmen. As was probably always the case, there was no warmup band and I think Zeppelin finally made it on stage at least an hour and a half after the advertised starting time. The wait was worth every minute!

I can only say that the electricity in the Richfield Coliseum that night was unlike anything I had experienced at any other concert, ever. The band had such a presence that it was hard to describe it in everyday, worldly terms. They were rather, well, unworldly in their stage presence. Years later, having seen most of the big hard rock acts from that era, I can say that Zeppelin was at a level above all others. I've seen the Stones, Aerosmith, Rush, Deep Purple, BOC, Skynyrd, Eagles, Foreigner, Van Halen, etc., etc., etc. and none compared, though all were awesome.

I'm thrilled that the boys are talking about taking the stage again! My 25-year-old son says he can't wait because he wants to pay homage to the kings. It says something when your art reaches that far through time.
